    Margaritas, guacamole and a plethora of options are among some of the reasons Rio Grande is one of NoVA’s favorites. - June issue 2012

    Good for happy hour or a quick drink/bite to eat before a movie. Outdoor seating is relaxing when weather is permitting.

    Nothing better than brunch outside on the patio. I typically order the Huevos Mexicanos (breakfast burrito)

    Cowboy Queso is amazingly sinful. Bacon and beef marinated in cheese is better than it sounds.

    The caritas tacos on the lunch menu are terrific as are the accompanying black beans.

    For a healthy reasonable meal get the mesquite salmon with no rice. Also one margarita swirl has 500 calories, so watch out !

    Don't waste your time ordering enchilada they taste great but you end up on the toilet for the rest of the night! Inside go for fajitas they are Devine and won't wreak your stomach!!!!!

    The seafood is farm raised and not wild. Apparently there is also a controversy surrounding the frog legs. Supposedly they aren't bred/raised in clean
